New footpath approved between Tiverton Parkway and Sampford Peverell
Posted on: 18 September 2017
Devon County Council (DCC) has approved a new street-lighted footpath, linking Tiverton Parkway station and Sampford Peverell.
On Wednesday 13 September DCC’s ruling Cabinet approved the 410-metre scheme which will include two bus stops.
Currently there is no footpath between the extended car park and Lower Town.
The new footway will run parallel to the existing road toward Sampford Peverell for approximately 410m.
At the junction with Lower Town the footway would then run along the south side of the green space and join with the existing pedestrian refuge island on Lower Town.
Pedestrians will then be able to walk to Sampford Peverell on the northern footway along Lower Town.
Two new bus stops along Lower Town will also be built; one between the properties Wickets and Dovetail and the other on the opposite side of the road of the property Edricia.
The speed limit will be reduced to 30mph along the length of the new lighting, and an enhanced crossing built near Edricia.
The speed restrictions and the crossing and lighting improvements will improve the National Cycle Network.
The route from the station runs along the highway and crosses Lower Town.
